I was fishing on my little stream this past weekend. I get up at 2 to be there at sunrise. It has native Brook and Brown trout. Brown average around 12 inches And Brookies are a bit smaller.
There's one pool I fish that's pretty much garunteed to have a few good sized Brookies. The water flows in at the head through over hanging cedar and pine and deepens quickly. At the back of the pool there's a log jam for shelter.
I usually swing a streamer across the front of the log jam and get a few fish.
This time the first pass brought out a good sized Brookie who took my fly and the fight was on. Normally this would be absolutely thrilling but as the Brookie came out of the log jam two Browns that I can only describe as underwater aircraft carriers came out alongside the Brookie and parralelled him racing for the fly.
After the Brookie took the fly, one dashed back to cover but the other followed the fight for a couple of seconds before dashing back to cover as well.
This was the Brookie.
Suffice it to say the Browns were much bigger and the Brookie which would have been a thrill at any other time, was a bit of a disappointment.
